Once again I find that we have much more in common than love of good music. I am a strong supporter of gun control (use both hands & focus on the front site), Ron Paul (though I think he has zero chance of being elected & believe that if he ends up running as a 3rd Party independent or Libertarian this will actually benefit Obama), & extremely concerned about U.S. debt/currency situation. I haven't kept up w/ this website, but can I assume you're familiar with ?

"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship." - Alexander Tyler

”Although gold and silver are not by nature money, money is by nature gold and silver.” - Karl Marx

“Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value - zero.” - Voltaire

by the way, the RRE New Years shows were an absolute blast...

Daddy D -

I am a 3 year veteran of and was a very active poster for a long time. Somewhere around 2200 posts. My wife and I were very active for a long time - we organized and sponsored the Lowesville Seminar a few years ago and did the threads on Long Term Food Storage. I also helped talk Chris back from the edge with a podcast following the Fukushima Accident - non of the "worst case" scenarios he was convinced were going to happen ever did - but that's what you get when a neurotoxicologist thinks too much about nuclear energy I suppose.

Anyway, I haven't been on the site that much lately - too many sociologists peeing on each other's legs and arguing in the margins.

Then the Resource Based Economy Zeitgeist moonies showed up in force and I had to take a break.

Figuring out my screen name should be easy - my avatar is a "Dead" giveaway!!

I meant to ask about the RRE New Years shows....glad you had a good time. My son and I saw them in Philly at the Theatre of the Living Arts a few years ago and still have great father-son bonding memories from that show.

Feel free to contact me off line if you want to continue these discussions without the risk of getting jerlouvis' bowels in an uproar. mandojamr at yaw hew daught calm.
